Milford Restaurants get the Baby Treatment from local Connecticut Newborn Photographer

This project has brought me soooo much joy! It all started with me waking up on April 1st and thinking what can I do to help out some of my local businesses? We always love to eat out, but these days it is hard for us because as you know my business has been closed down since March 16th, so no money is coming in! I wanted to still support our local food businesses because I want them to still be there when this is all over. I was thinking of a way to support them and also do what I like best, taking pictures!

So I had this idea of ordering one food item from some local places and dressing them up and posing them like newborns. I called my best friend Kylie and ask her if she was around for a project and I called 13 local places and ordered one of their signature items on the menu. Some delivered and some had curbside pickup so we split the orders into two and grabbed the items that weren’t delivered. She left them out on the curb for me too. You know, to be safe! 🙂

I took all the items in the studio unwrapped them and lined them up. Then I tried to get fun ideas for each of the items. I knew I wanted the hotdog swaddled up to give Pigs in a Blanket a new meaning as well as a bun in the oven.

The chips had to go in a bowl because that is how you typically eat them. The grilled cheese gave me the hardest time but then I was like – the grilled cheese is already awesome on its own, so why mess with that. So I just added a crown. The other ideas came to me as I was going along.

I was hoping that the images would create some joy and get people excited about trying out these local places. It’s been such a fun project and of course, the best part was eating all those things after I took the pictures. What I didn’t expect was for the images to go viral around the world! This has been such a fun and wild ride! So many shares and so much love from all over the world. I am seriously blown away!!

Let’s see where you can find the images online:
